About Us

Mission Statement/Philosophy of St. Mary School

St. Mary Catholic School is different by design. With the assistance of the Pastor, Principal, staff, students, parents, and parishioners, we provide an excellent educational environment where students and teachers work together to cultivate, strengthen, and share faith, excel academically by fostering a passion for learning and personal accountability. It is our goal at St. Mary to commit ourselves to the development of the total person, spiritual and physical, moral and intellectual, individual and social, in an atmosphere filled with the spirit of Christ.

St. Mary offers a challenging curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment.

St. Mary School has 68 students enrolled in Grades PreK through Grade 6 as of October 31, 2022

St. Teresa’s Prayer

May today there be peace within….
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you….
May you be content knowing you are a child of God….
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us
